There are dissolvable stitches in place. They will loosen or melt away on their own at some point during the next week. If they come loose even on the day of surgery, do not worry. If it’s been more than a week, and your stitches remain intact, you can gently attempt to brush them away.
Your stitches will need to be removed in 2 weeks when you return to our office.

You must also not consume alcohol and/or other drugs with sedative properties for a minimum of 18 hours or longer if drowsiness or dizziness persists.
